one thing good about Blizzard is that they don't turn their products into cash cowsErrr, I would have to politely disagree with that. Blizzard is as greedy as any other company. The only reason Blizzard is not milking those franchises to death is because they are making money from another cash cow, WoW. That gives them time and resources to keep content and updates flowing into WoW while they brainstorm on what new gimmick ideas to put into a Starcraft/Diablo sequel. I honestly hope that they don't make sequels to either of these two classics, because they will more than likely ruin it.

It's 4 million people "played" according to them.
#1. I don't believe they've had those sorts of numbers in the first place.
#2. Even if they had, they're certainly not counting the people - like me - who did and saw everything inside of 3 months on both sides, then got bored and quit. Their bleed factor is substantially higher than they admit.
WoW is a great game, but they didn't launch with near enough content. Their entire endgame is focused on nothing but uber-guilds and raiding. Thanks, but no thanks.
Atleast if I downloaded the game I could burn it to a single dvd WITH the first patch. You see..what happens many months or a year down the road, and the game isn't installed anymore?
